Review: I've no idea whether Mitiko actually intended the title of this seven-track offering to double as a 'serving suggestion' but it certainly works as one, as the Montenegran disco stalwart gives the dancefloor stompers a swerve and turns his energies to ploughing a much more laidback furrow. The shimmering piano chords and lazy, low-slung b-line that kick off 'Only Yours' set the tone for an album that seldom gets above walking pace but still manages to cram in nods to a wide range of influences - see, for instance, 'Phase One''s genius marriage of a Phuture vocal snip to some superbly smooooooooooth jazz-funk geetar licks, and was that a cheeky James Ingram bassline too? File under mellow horizontal loveliness.
